Seems like almost every other post I write here has to do with makeup. Am I becoming one of those girls?
Nah, not possible. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and the products I do use are to help me create a natural look. You’ll never see me with the full “MAC face” and/or bright red lips. That’s way too much for me. I’m more of a subtle girl with an accent here and there; usually my eyes.
Having said that, I picked up 2 compacts (BOGO is my friend) of L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail Lipstick. It’s similar to the Lipcolor that came out a while ago that was promoted mainly by Beyonce. That product was applied with the prototypical lipgloss wand, while the new product is a true lipstick. It still comes in that really cool duo with the reflective mirror case. L’Oreal knocked it out of the park with this packaging. Very clever!
So I bought a more “red” color and darker wine shade. I don’t use but a dab of either because I don’t want a dominating lipcolor. I don’t think it works well with my face, since I have full lips. I don’t want my mouth to overpower my face! I put a little of the red shade, Rose, before I went to church this morning. Then, after a few minutes, I applied the conditioning topcoat.
Since then I’ve had brunch, taken a nap, and eaten dinner. The topcoat is the shizz! My lips are still moisturized! I haven’t had to apply another layer, chapstick, lip balm, or anything since the initial application 12 hours ago. Because I didn’t use much color to begin with, most of it has worn off, but not all! There’s still a little bit of a color stain on my lips. I like it when I look like I’m not wearing much lip color.
So my final verdict is that I am very impressed to still see some color on my lips without dryness. I was worried about a longwear product making my lips dry out within a few hours. That didn’t happen at all. L’Oreal has done a great job with their new Infallible Never Fail Lipstick.
Go buy some! I’m not sure about other areas, but my local CVS is having a L’Oreal lip color BOGO beginning today. Prefect time to stock up!
